USA-Argentina Open Thread

via thesportsfanjournal.com

Team USA wraps up group play this afternoon with its toughest opponent yet. Argentina, which won the gold back in 2004, is 3-1 so far, having lost only to France. You might recall that these teams met in an exhibition contest back on July 22. The red, white and blue took that one by just six points. No question that if Team USA doesn't have it together they can lose to these guys.

Argentina's been led by our longtime acquaintances Luis Scola and Manu Ginobili. Scola's averaging 23 and 6, Manu 21 and 6. Carlos Delfino (16 points a game on 62% True Shooting) has been a very effective third scorer. Andres Nocioni has been struggling with his shot, but Pablo Prigioni, who'll be with the Knicks next season, has done some nice playmaking from the point-guard position. Through four Games Prigioni has 18 assists, 5 steals and just 6 turnovers.

In California the game starts at 2:15 p.m. I hope you all get to catch it!
